Paddington Bear

Well, I did make a card this afternoon but not the one I should have made, I got a bit distracted with my new Paddington Bear stamp that I got free with one of the mags I subscribe to. I am so not good at colouring stamped images and my feeble attempt on this cute little bear was done with what few watercolour pencils I have. I know I have to work much harder at my colouring but alas its not something that comes naturally to me, perhaps it something to do with me being left handed lol! I stamped onto white linen card and then mounted on red & blue card from my stash. All the matting and layering incl the scalloped border was cut on my Cricut :) I used some red gingham paper, flower and brad also from my stash and the circular greeting was done on my PC.

Great image Donna. What cart did you use to make the scallop circle. It is really effective. Lindax

Linda, I used Accent Essentials for the scalloped circle, I think it was cut at about 4½" :) Donna x
